Monument to Nikolay PirogovA monument to the famous Russian surgeon, founder of the battlefield medicine Nikolay Ivanovich Pirogov is very original and made in the European style. The scientist is pictured in the moment when he is sitting in the armchair with low back. On the left knee he is holding the skull. By the right arm he is leaning on the elbow-rest of the armchair. He is looking to the left, probably he is looking on someone who just right now came into his private office and had diverted him from the studying of the physiology of the human skull.

The monument was placed on the big original granite pedestal with bronze bas-reliefs which looks like the wreaths. In the center of the wreaths there are bright statements of the scientist.
